Description
Christine Salus returned from a monthlong trip to India and created this plan to get herself back into shape. This 6week program consists of fresh new workout routines each day so you never get bored. Users can see Christine transform her own body from week to week as she takes her followers along for the ride, one day at a time. The program is a combination of HIIT (highintensity interval training) mixed with traditional strength training incorporating weights. The equipment required for this plan includes: heavy dumbbells or kettlebells (Christine uses 20lbs), medium dumbbells (she uses 10lbs), light dumbbells (she uses 8lbs), sliders (plastic lids from a salad container), a stability ball, and a chair/bench. As always, you must consult your physician before starting workouts on Resoltz.
